Queue Viewer

The Queue Viewer (a.k.a. Queue Rules Viewer) interface is a queue of the created auto responder rules. The Queue Viewer allows the listed rules to be enabled and disabled, to be promoted and demoted (by changing their queue position), to be edited, to be exported and imported. The option to enable the Auto Responder and to allow a non-matching request to pass-through is also part of the Queue Viewer.

Rules Grouping & Priority

By default, the Queue Viewer will list all created & imported rules based on their priority (see Rule Options for details on how to promote/demote a rule in the queue). You can also create a custom group for the rules in the queue by using Group View/Priority View toggle button.

Use Group View/Priority View toggle to switch the rules in the queue based on priority vs. group identity. Toggle between Group and Priority

Use Group/Ungroup toggle button to create croups for selected rules in the queue. Note that the Group/Ungroup button is visible only when you have toggled to Group View. Grouping rules

Enable Auto Responses

Use the Enable Auto Responses checkbox to activate the Auto Responder. Note that Live Traffic switch should also be turned on to Capturing mode. Enable Auto Responder

Import Rules

You can import rules from a FARX (Fiddler Auto Responder XML) file. The FARX file contains a set of previously created Auto Responder rules. Your current set of rules is automatically saved on exit and reloaded when you start Fiddler Everywhere again.

Use the Import button to provide a FARX file that contains the set of rules. Import rules

Export Rules

You can export rules in a FARX file (Fiddler Auto Responder XML). The exported file can be easily reused via the import functionality.

Use the Export button to create a FARX file that contains the set of rules. Export rules

Unmatched Requests Passthrough

The Unmatched Requests Passthrough option controls what happens when a Session does not match any of the applied rules. When the checkbox is checked, the unmatched requests are sent to the server normally, without any interference from the Auto Responder. When the option is OFF (the checkbox is unchecked), Fiddler will generate a 404 Not FOund response for any unconditional requests that are not matching the applied rules.

Export rules

By default, when the Auto Responder is enabled, the Unmatch Requests Passthrough option is turned off, meaning that all unmatched requests will start to fail with a 404 (Fiddled) response.

For example, Fiddler generated a 404 response due to a request that is not matching the applied rules when Unmatch Requests Passthrough option is turned off. Unmatched Request

Rule Options

Each rule present in the Queue Viewer can be controlled via the following options:

  • Enable & Disable Rule - Sets if the specified rule will be applied or not.

  • Promote - Raises the priority of the specified rule in the queue. If the rule has applied a final action, the lower priority rules won't be applied.

  • Demote - Lowers the priority of the specified rule in the queue.

  • Edit - Opens the specified rule in the Rules Editor where it can be edited and saved.

  • Delete - Deletes the specified rule permanently.
